I want a man not a cheap drone

1) YOU HAVE A BOSS
When you work a job, you as a grown man have to call another man your boss – there is nothing more to say on that point.
2) YOU HAVE COLLEAGUES
I feel sorry for anyone with colleagues. If you’re dying at work, I feel for you, I worked with some of the most miserable, petty, boring human beings on the planet. With their idol gossip, and their meaningless chitter chatter, and their irrelevant, unrequested opinions.
And that’s just the bad people, you might work with decent human beings, but the truth is, you wouldn’t be spending time with them if you weren’t getting paid. You’d be spending time with your friends and your family and the girls in your life, instead of spending the majority of your life surrounded by a group of strangers rounded up off the street.
3) YOU’RE CONFINED
You’re confined to a desk for 40 to 80 hours a week.
You’re told when to come in, where to sit, where to eat, where to piss, where to shit and what time you get to go home. And if you’re a good boy all year, you get one week off to what you actually want to do.
And that’s if you’re lucky, the bottom 20% don’t even have that option, they’re working 7 days a week on the night shift at McDonald’s just to get by.
The beautiful thing about owning your own business is the freedom. I’m writing this from Asia, where normal people spend their vacation, with my shirt off, on my couch.
And even though you’ll probably be working more hours in your own business, you always know you have the OPTION to cut work early at any time. And it’s the option that means everything. Even when you don’t exercise that option, you know you can cut off work at 1 PM, on a Monday, and
have sex all afternoon.
Compare that to sitting slumped over your desk in January, at 2 PM, with the holidays over, and the day just dragging on with no end in sight, knowing you just have to sit their and take it. There is just no way you could ever work a job again once you’ve tasted the fruits of true freedom.
4) IT’S BORING
If there is a hell, it involves data entry under flourescent lights.
Jobs aren’t fun, that’s why it’s called a job.
5) YOUR HEALTH TAKES A HIT
They say sitting is the new smoking and they’re right.
Sitting hunched over a desk all day is one of the worse things you can do to your body.
It’s no wonder people are so unhealthy and so unhappy when their expected to be chained to a desk and a computer all day.
6) YOU’RE SETTLING FOR MEDIOCRITY
You’re settling and you know it, no matter how hard you try and sell yourself.
When you we’re a little boy, you probably dreamed of doing something great, or at least living a great, fun, adventurous life. But you gave up on that dream because everyone told you to and because you’re scared of what might happen if you don’t stick to the script.
The question you have to ask yourself is this: would your 10 year old self be proud of what you’re doing, or would he be depressed if he knew what the future held for him?
My 10 year old self would never have settled, and neither will my 34 year old self.
7) YOUR COMPANY IS DIRTY
If you’re working for a company, especially a big company, chances are your company is dirty. If you can’t see it from where you sit, it’s only because you’re not on the salesfloor. I’ve never worked on a sales floor that operated ethically. Some we’re better than others, but I was never 100% comfortable with what I was doing.
It wasn’t until I started my own business, where I had full control over my products, and my sales material and my marketing, that I was able to feel completely comfortable with what I was doing.
8) YOU DON’T HAVE A PASSION FOR IT
You don’t have a passion for your marketing job… you liar.
I can’t tell you how many people I met in Corporate America who would drone on about whatever punkass job they had as if it was important and as if they liked it.
I used to do it to, back when I was still wasting time at networking conferences me and all the other sales guys would spend all night talking about how passionate we were about our jobs.
If you had a passion for it you’d do it for free, and no one would be filling out TPS reports for free. If I had 100 mil in the bank I would be doing this business, I promise you that.
Your business doesn’t have to be your biggest passion in life, but you have to enjoy it. Or maybe it’s not the actual business you enjoy, but you enjoy the idea of closing deals and making money. As long as you get up on Monday morning, happy with what you’re doing, then you’ve got the right business.
9) TRAVEL TIME
I remember it like it was yesterday.
I wake up at 5 AM to the dark, grey, Canadian winter in February.
I hurry through my morning routine to go catch the streetcar.
I stand on the corner freezing to death, waiting for the streetcar that’s 20 minutes late and try and squeeze my way inside with all the other miserable commuters.
I take the streetcar to the subway.
I take the subway to the bus stop and wait another 20 minutes for a bus that’s running late, freezing my bag off, and contemplating jumping into traffic.
I take the bus to my job.
At my job I make 100 cold calls harassing people for money.
At the end of the day, I take the bus to the subway to the streetcar to my home.
An hour and a half each way, in the freezing cold, three hours total travel time, all to get back and forth from a job I hate with a vengeance.
10) MONEY
You can’t get rich as an employee, that’s not how capitalism works.
You need to own the means of production to get what you’re worth.
When you settle for 60k, you’re saying you can’t make 100k on your own.
In sales it’s even worse, you get 12% of what you make and you’re supposed to be happy with it.
You can bring in a 100k a month in revenue and they still treat you like shit.
Sure you can make good money as a salesman, but you can make way more on your own.
Same goes with being a professional. Sure you can make good money as a lawyer or a doctor, if you’re willing to work like a dog and live a high stress lifestyle.
And that’s only after the 5-10 years of school you had to go to, and the 50 to 200k you spent on your education. And if you don’t have a rich daddy, you’re going to be paying off those student loans into your late 30’s.
Compare that to 5-7 years of intensive work in your business and taking that 50 to 200k and throwing it into advertising and marketing and it’s not even a question that you’d be making more cash on your own.
It’s no accident that every single guy on the Forbes list is a business owner.
11) HATRED
I’ve had a job since I was 14 and I hated every job I ever had. My mom used to tell me I should be luckytoI have work, she couldn’t understand why I thought mowing lawns and working retail was beneath me. She couldn’t understand because she’s not like me, and she’s not like you.
You’ve hated every job you’ve ever had.
You hate the job you have now.
You’ll hate every job you’ll ever have.
And you know it.
If you’re being honest, you know that business ownership is the only option.
